Red & Gray

50 Is Not Old |Red & Gray This past weekend I was supposed to go to a street festival in Erwin, Tennessee. However, the weather was not real cooperative. With rain, wind, and temperatures in the 50’s, I did what most fashion bloggers would do….I went shopping. I’m loving this new poncho that I bought over the weekend. I purchased it at T J Maxx, and it is a Joseph A.  Here is a similar one. I happen to like mine better, because I like the sleeve detail.50 Is Not Old |Red & Gray HairI decided to wear red accessories with the gray, this is one of my favorite color pairings. I threw on a really long bead set, (this is doubled), and a bakelite necklace. The red bakelite necklace is one of my favorite necklace’s. It has cubes, disc’s, and balls, not to mention dangles. That is a lot of different shapes in one necklace. I purchased it years ago at the 127 Yard Sale. This is a 690 mile long yard sale that starts in Michigan and goes into Alabama. You can find ANYTHING at this sale. I have seen bomb shelters, an entire stuffed turkey, preserved organs floating in solutions, and my favorite find, a chastity belt.50 Is Not Old |Red & Gray PinkThis shows a better picture of the sleeve. Those are metal snaps. You can also see, although not well, my red and clear rhinestone bracelet. Vintage of course.50 Is Not Old |Red & Gray 1These pants are Harve Benard and they reminded me of riding pants. It’s hard to see the details on them, but they have a seam at the knee going from side to side, then a seam down the middle from the knee to the ankle. 50 Is Not Old |Red & Gray purseWearing a pair of riding boots just seemed like the logical choice. I dragged out my red Dooney purse. I really like the tassels on both sides. I looked on several sites, but it is sold out, and I did not find one that I considered similar. I am not as wild about the opening on this purse. It has a smaller opening with a zipper closure. With this type opening, you can scrape you hand on the zipper. Whine, whine, whine!50 Is Not Old |Red & Gray 2My little cutie pie decided to come and join me for his cameo appearance. It won’t be long till he will be modeling his winter outfits.
